G.W. Cunningham and Grant Hickman was over from Big Springs one day last week.  Mr. Cunningham informs us that the whooping cough, measles and diphtheria are all raging on the upper waters of Yellow Creek and that nearly all the children in the neighborhood were down with one or the other of the diseases.
